Danny Wild / MLB.com : Harper hits 480-foot walk-off homer

Brian Moynahan / Special to MLB.com : NYPL notes: Kaline carries on tradition 
  • Moynahan writes a nice piece on Connecticut Tigers second baseman Colin Kaline who is the grandson of Al Kaline, the Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer who has spent nearly six decades with the organization as a player, broadcaster and executive.
Andrew Pentis / MiLB.com : Moore fans 10 in six shutout innings 
  • MLB.com’s No. 1 pitching prospect Matt Moore, struck out 10 over six shutout innings Friday, but his early exit and the bullpen’s struggle cost him a fourth straight victory in Durham’s 3-2 road loss to the Buffalo Bisons. Regardless, the Rays top prospect lowered his ERA to 0.88 in fifth Triple-A start.
